This business has barely begun, it's not even finished, nobody knows how it will finish, and there's already a movie being made! It would hardly surprise me if there was an announcement in a few days' time about a contract from a publisher for the autobiography...

Re: Cor...

Yes this seems to be a fast track to celebrity these days -

a. commit a criminal offense (ensuring that it in some way or other you involve the internet, and some dubious claims of Human rights)

b. run from your crime and claim asylum in a country with a dubious human rights record

c. .... who knows

Instant famous for 15 minutes.

I think this is the icon you were looking for. --->

Unlike Assange, the crimes imputed to Snowden can be directly linked to his whistleblowing and thus might be considered as political persecution. Think Deepthroat, not Aldrich Ames.

Maybe Zynga should be building a Snowden spy game for my iPhone.

great idea.

you could buy ingame currency to fund his hotel stay, choose his level of food quality and room. you need to manage your own PR without annoying too many countries. Occasionally Assange will pop up and say somthing random that will either hurt, hinder or destroy your relations with a certain country.

Then you need to find/forge travel papers whilst dealing with Russions, Ecuadorians and the odd random nation.

I had to laugh at this effort. In a day or two I'll watch it again and do the same. I'd be more charitable if they had actually waited till the story played out.

What's next then? 24 hour coverage of Assange in the Big Brother house Embassy?

lots of dramatic music

and a little bit of content.

Would have been nice to continue further when things are actually known. Probably in a few years, he'll do the international celebrity tour

How will the story end.......

He will soon be found to have committed suicide hanging from a tree in some little used back woods and the ensuing dirt will bury his story to the back pages of some obscure much raking publication only read by conspiracy theorists.

The truth will not out that at least is a lie of out times,it never had a chance to be made fully public and it never will.The shadows will go back out of the public glare into the dark recesses and the world will stumble on.

Re: How will the story end.......

Yes you are quite right, 'He will soon be found to have committed suicide hanging from a tree in some little used back woods".

With his hands securely tied behind his back, after first having shot himself in the head, twice! End of story.
